CAMBRIDGE, Mass., November 14, 2011 – Striving to become the go-to resource for college students to discover and make Boston their home, social question and answer platform TipnTag.com is looking for student ambassadors to join the site and help shape its future. Started by a Bentley University graduate Khalid Kassim, TipnTag.com is aimed at Boston newcomers and Boston natives, the curious and the experienced, where students can engage in a dialogue on everything from the best student-friendly restaurants and underground music scenes, to tips and specials offered to students by retailers, clubs and venues around town.
Based on a simple” Where can I…” question structure, TipnTag.com offers many ways for students to get the most out of Boston. Students can answer daily, curated questions, eligible for $50 gift cards to over 20 retailers of their choice such as Starbucks, GAP, Best Buy and Travelocity. Students are also encouraged to ask and answer questions of particular interest across popular categories, and discover new places and friends in the Boston area.
Students who engage on the site are automatically entered to win an iPhone 4S, which will be awarded during the beginning of December at a great location in Boston to be announced later on this month on TipnTag.com.
“I started TipnTag.com with a vision of creating a digital meetup place for students looking to make their college city feel like home,” shares TipnTag’s founder Khalid Kassim. “ We are starting with Boston and will be rolling out to more cities in 2012. We are looking to partner with students to help us shape TipnTag.com as their place to ask, answer and discover.”

They can leave tips for the daily Top Tip Giveaway, the daily curated question promotion, or choose from among 14 popular categories, including Dining and Nightlife and Entertainment. They can also visit the TipnTag blog, which features the best tips shared on the platform weekly.
